2015 MBA Application ThreadAlright, So who's struggling through R1 apps like I am? Trying to find the time between my 70 HR week, my needy GF, and life's general bullshit has been tough but I'm through a few first drafts of essays and have my R1 school schools down to Harvard, Wharton, Columbia, Booth, and Sloan. Who... 1 day 15 hours
Should I retake my 700?47Q, 40V. Lowest Verbal I've gotten since my cold test (was averaging 43-44). Quant is in line with practice tests. White Male, lots of volunteering, 3.4 Econ graduate from top private but non ivy school (think Duke/Northwestern), FLDP at F500 then FP... 5 months 1 week

Asking for a raise/bonus after only 6 months? All, So i'm 6 months into my new position. Most of you know I was an FLDP in Aerospace and I immediately left that company for what I think was a promising position in healthcare at a smaller more meritocratic. I make 80k base and was given a 10k signing bonus and i'm the only junior analyst... 1 year 8 months
Start up offer - need adviceSo, i've been MIA on here for awhile and I apologize to some of you that have pmed me about corp fin. I started a new job that has turned out to be very demanding and just kind of fizzled out spending so much time on here. But recently i've had a new possibility. I've been approached by someone... 1 year 11 months
In love with a girl who you are pretty sure is...Long story short, i've been dating a girl casually for about 7 months and we have been, supposedly, "exclusive" for going on 4 now. However, we are going to have to be long distance for a year. She moved home in May and is there until she starts her new 1yr volunteer commitment that is many... 2 years 2 months
Is renting in NYC/NJ impossible to do sight...What the topic says. I am moving for work and need to do it quickly. But I haven't been able to have any luck because of the fact that I can't make it to the area before I need to move. The last two times I moved I just rented a place from craigslist from pics but no one seems to want to allow me... 2 years 3 months
Had a dream about WSOThat included Brady having a breakdown because he still couldnt get into Harvard. And then me getting my certified user status revoked and being really upset about it. Signs my life is pathetic? I think so. 2 years 3 months
Should I take the new offer?So friends, I have doled out some of my wisdom, I'm now looking for a little perspective back. I am entering my final year of a 3 year FLDP.

NYU would probably cost you over $200K+ because of the living expenses in Manhattan for similar career opportunities. I think only CBS is worth... 1 week 2 days

It's always worth applying (I am and I know I'm likely giving them 250 dollars to tell me to fuck off) but it's very unlikely you will get in. If you want an MBA, you likely need to open up your school list, and significantly so. Even if this thread was about Columbia I... 1 week 5 days
